Mission Statement

MSPCC is a private, non-profit society dedicated to leadership in protecting and promoting the rights and well-being of children and families.

Background Statement

In 1874, in New York City, concerned citizens, looking to rescue an abused and neglected young girl named Mary Ellen, discovered to their dismay that animals had legal rights and protections but children did not. The ensuing outrage and activism of those citizens was the impetus that led to the inaugural New York Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to children (NYSPCC), which then inspired 15 Societies worldwide and 34 across the US, of which the Massachusetts SPCC (MSPCC) became the most influential. The world has changed considerably over its long history, but MSPCC’s leadership and commitment to children’s rights remains unfailing, evolving with the changing landscape of America to best advocate for children and families. Today, approximately 25,000 children, caregivers, and families benefit from MSPCC's work each year.

Impact Statement

MSPCC's achievements in recent years include the following:

Expansion of Healthy Families (a program of The Children's Trust): MSPCC has a long history of providing various parent education and support programs, including Healthy Families in Holyoke, Lawrence, Lowell, and Worcester. MSPCC is proud that in 2016, our Boston office received two new Healthy Families contracts to serve an additional 360 young parents living in 18 of the 24 communities in the city of Boston. It is an honor and an incredible opportunity to deliver this programming in Boston, where MSPCC has been a part of the fabric of the city since 1878. MSPCC reaches more than 800 families annually through these parenting programs with the addition of Boston Area Healthy Families. The focus of MSPCC’s young parent programming is supporting and educating parents, who are young and lacking family support and resources, to teach them practical skills and boost their self-confidence in their ability to be good parents. The staff connect participants to community resources to promote self-sufficiency and encourage progress in education and job training for economic security. There have been many success stories from parents who have been able to pursue their education and occupational goals while feeling increasingly confident in their ability to parent.

Expansion of Survivor Services: Within MSPCC's clinical programming, the Survivor Services program provides individual, family, and group counseling to children and youth who have experienced a wide range of abuse and trauma, including sexual abuse, witness to homicide, and community violence. Funded by the Massachusetts Office for Victim Assistance, MSPCC has provided similar services in Holyoke and Worcester for more than a decade. MSPCC is proud to have secured additional funding to expand the reach of those programs and also to bring the programming to the Boston area. Survivor Services in Boston promptly began collaborating with MSPCC's other services by offering support groups to grandparents raising their grandchildren from our KINnections program. These grandparents have experienced numerous hardships and trauma, often including the loss of their adult child to drug abuse or violence. Survivor Services provides a means for MSPCC to bring its clinical expertise to the grandparents we serve to promote their healing.

Advances to our work in early childhood mental health: Under the leadership of MSPCC over the last few years, the Children’s Mental Health Campaign (CMHC) worked with a range of stakeholders including state agency leaders and policy makers to develop an Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health (IECMH) work plan with administrative, legislative, and budgetary components. In June 2017 we held a summit to work with participants to identify a set of “next steps” for advancing access to services for children 0-5 years of age. During the summer of 2018, MSPCC and our CMHC IECMH workgroup partners wrote and are preparing to release a report to summarize the findings from the 2017 summit. This work promotes a shared agenda and collaboration across stakeholders. MSPCC has also been awarded a number of grants to advance our work in the early childhood space, including a one-year grant from The Boston Foundation to develop and pilot a system for prioritize and facilitate access to mental health screening and services for young children coming in to Department of Children and Families (DCF) care. Another early childhood grant was awarded earlier this year to help support and professionalize the early childhood workforce.

Needs Statement

MSPCC’s work focuses on preventing or mitigating the effects of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) including physical, sexual, and emotional abuse, neglect, household substance abuse, household mental illness, and domestic violence. To ensure that children thrive and succeed, MSPCC believes we must simultaneously address both the needs of parents as well as children. The vast majority of parents MSPCC serves have experienced childhood trauma themselves. By promoting social and emotional learning and supports for children as well as the tools to improve parents’ skills, education, economic situation, and mental and physical health, MSPCC uses a two-generational approach to improve outcomes for both the child(ren) and parent(s).

Exposure to multiple and/or prolonged ACEs directly correlates to serious delays in development and to an alarming range of health and behavioral consequences that can continue throughout life. Across Massachusetts, more than 203,000 children live in poverty, increasing their social vulnerability. The opioid crisis has taken a significant toll on the communities served by MSPCC. Substance abuse continues to be the lead reason among the more than 75,000 reports of child abuse or neglect this past year in Massachusetts.

Studies support that adolescents who have been exposed to ACEs are more likely to experience health and mental health issues, substance use, early initiation of sexual activity, teen pregnancy, interpersonal violence, self-directed violence, expulsion from school, poor attendance, and lower graduation rates. It is clear that children and youth affected by ACEs in the communities we serve face tremendous obstacles. It is MSPCC’s commitment to prevent, intervene, and advocate to decrease and eliminate ACEs through our prevention and intervention programs.

CEO Statement

We often say at the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children that "prevention is our middle name."  Our best work is when we reach a young mother or father to offer guidance, support and skills that will help them become nurturing and self-sufficient parents. Research shows this is the best way to keep a child safe, healthy and thriving. When we can do this, families become healthy, which leads to strong families for generations to come.

This past year witnessed a rallying spirit around the fact that experiences in early childhood matter, and engaging families makes a lasting difference in the health and life of a child. Recent studies on the brain and research into adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) underscore the importance of our advocacy for investment in prevention services. ACEs have documented negative effects on how children grow and develop, resulting in outcomes that can include substance abuse, depression, high risk behaviors, and even lifespan. At the end of the day, unless there is a breakthrough, the course is set for the next generation to face the same challenges.

This is where MSPCC has the opportunity to change the arc of a child’s life. Our efforts set the stage for a brighter future for families. Prevention is at the heart of what MSPCC does. We work to recognize and prevent stressors that may contribute to abuse and neglect. We promote each family’s strengths that foster a child’s well-being. We lay the foundation for healthy adulthood.

Board Chair Statement

Turning points… crossroads… roads not taken. Those moments, knowingly or unknowingly, that chart the future paths of our lives. We all have them. Some may seem subtle. Others are mo­mentous. They all are potential life changers. For some, the turning point might, in the moment, seem mundane. Such as whether I felt like hosting a party in Miami one night in 1982. I ultimately decided to do it, and, as it turned out, I met my wife that night. How different my life would have been if I decided not to have the party. Or if I had chosen to begin my career in a different city.

Or, more ominously, many years ago, one of my dearest friends missed a plane home from the UK, having decided at the last minute to complete some work. The plane she originally was on was the victim of the Lockerbie bombing. I would have never known her.

The point is that all of our lives are largely defined by turning points. They have massive impact. So, what do turning points have to do with MSPCC? For me, it’s cen­tral to why I chose to join them as a board member. Research overwhelmingly supports what many of us know intuitively: children grow and thrive in a healthy, stable, loving family. We know that children facing abuse and neglect are substantially more likely to experience negative consequences as an adult, including depression, substance abuse, or even early death.

While there is much good work in many charities and agencies focused on relieving current suffer­ing, MSPCC is unique. We go to the root causes. We are about being that turning point in the life of a family and a child. We are about changing the arc of that child’s life.

How do we do it? We are all about prevention: about diverting children from the road not taken, the road that would, as research increasingly confirms, have led them to a difficult and unneces­sarily challenged life. We work with families and at-risk parents. We support them to become more stable. We help steer them, through their challenges, to where their hopes for stability and love can emerge. In doing so, we create the foundation for each child to thrive and grow into a healthy adult. It is our aim to do this with countless families. Over and over and over again. And, ultimately, this is what would make those countless children in those countless families, when they do grow up, able to take that foundation, and use it to build another … and another … and another… healthy family of their own.

Program Short-Term Success  MSPCC is currently a respected leader and trusted source in advocating for key child and family policy issues.
  • MSPCC is the coordinating agency of the Children's Mental Health Campaign, which seeks to bridge the considerable gap between the need and availability of quality mental health services for children.
  • MSPCC collaborates with the Massachusetts Alliance for Families, an advocacy association dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for the thousands of children who cannot live with their biological families and for the families who care for them.
  • MSPCC continues to press for reform of the current juvenile justice system, shifting initial intervention from the court system to local, family-oriented programs to address behavioral problems.
  • As always, MSPCC is a leader in the ongoing effort to prevent child abuse and neglect, calling upon the public to remain vigilant and report suspected abuse.
Program Long-Term Success  For more than 140 years, MSPCC has been a tireless advocate for the rights and well-being of children and families. When MSPCC was founded, animals had more rights than abused and neglected children; unregulated boarding houses served as make-shift orphanages; and the commercial exploitation of children was still widely acceptable. Today, these conditions seem unthinkable, thanks in no small part to MSPCC’s relentless campaigns to change laws, hearts, and minds. While the world has changed considerably during its history, MSPCC has remained at the forefront of advocating successfully for the evolving needs of children and families. No doubt the unique challenges of this generation will one day be ancient history due in no small part to MSPCC’s leadership.
Program Success Monitored By 
  • Successful influence of legislative outcomes that positively affect children and families;
  • Depth and breadth of media coverage generated by MSPCC, or in collaboration with like-minded organizations, on priority issues;
  • Recruitment and engagement of our Children’s Advocacy Network membership;
  • Strength of MSPCC relationships with key leaders and decision makers related to child and family policies;
  • Leadership within sector and relevant issue coalitions and collaborations. 
Examples of Program Success  "MSPCC has been instrumental in putting dozens of laws on the books regarding everything from abandonment to custody to support. Through MSPCC's efforts, adoption processes have been streamlined and foster care better regulated. Government programs have been instituted that strive to ensure children's well-being with regard to housing, nutrition, health care, and education. And perhaps most importantly, a new awareness of issues such as abuse and neglect has taken hold at all levels of society." – Steve Pagliuca, MSPCC Board Chair, Emeritus 

Child & Family Counseling

MSPCC provides clinical mental health treatment to more than 2,000 children and adults every year. MSPCC's licensed outpatient clinics provide mental health evaluation and treatment, including individual, group and family counseling. MSPCC’s unmatched range of services is designed to respond to the individual needs of infants, children, adolescents and their families.

Program Short-Term Success  MSPCC treats children affected by trauma, depression, disruptive behavior, attention disorders, anxiety and adults affected by depression, trauma, bipolar and other mental health conditions. Through individual, family, and group treatment, parent training, case management, and psychopharmacology interventions, MSPCC clients attain positive outcomes and improve the quality of their lives.
Program Long-Term Success 
If left untreated, mental health disorders in children and adolescents can interfere with the way they think, feel, and act, sometimes leading to school failure, family conflicts, drug abuse, violence, and even suicide.

, more accessible, quality mental health services can have a dramatic positive impact on children’s personal and academic success, their families, and society-at-large, such as:
  • A decline in youth violence;
  • Fewer children and young adults engaged in the juvenile justice system;
  • More children in the child welfare system placed in permanent homes;
  • A marked improvement in academic performance, as well as reduction in truancy, suspension and expulsion;
  • More young people able to overcome their illness and reach their potential;
  • Stronger families who understand and support one another.
Program Success Monitored By  MSPCC utilizes standardized outcome tools to assess clients’ status at the beginning of treatment and to monitor treatment progress. Clinicians use this information to guide individual treatment and the agency uses aggregate results for continuous quality improvement.
Examples of Program Success  Parents share their experience with MSPCC Counseling Services:
“The staff at MSPCC has been wonderful to me and my son. They are a very caring and family-oriented organization. I feel that they are very understanding and supportive to all our needs and I can call anytime and speak with someone when needed.” – Mother receiving mental health services at MSPCC’s Western Massachusetts clinic
“The care that the workers feel for their clients. You don't feel they are just doing a days work, they really care and want to help, which makes your troubles easier to deal with. They really understand your feelings.” – Mother receiving mental health services at MSPCC’s Western Massachusetts clinic

Prevention & Family Support Services

At MSPCC, we believe that prevention and early intervention offer the best hope for children at risk. If we can anticipate the needs and stresses of today's families - biological, as well as adoptive, foster and kinship families - and equip them with the necessary resources and skills to respond to them, then we have provided the truest form of protection. MSPCC's prevention and support programs offer a wide range of services designed to respond to the individual needs of the children and families that we serve. Last year, MSPCC helped almost 800 at-risk parents become more self-confident and raise children who are safe, healthy and ready to learn through home visiting, parent education, developmental screenings, parent support groups, and connections to concrete community supports. We also provided support services to over 18,000 adoptive, foster and kinship families who have opened their hearts and homes to vulnerable children.

Program Short-Term Success  Prevention and Support Services strengthen families and promote child well-being. MSPCC works with families who are struggling to take care of their children and whose children are at risk, yet they fall below the threshold for government intervention. They also support foster, adoptive and kinship families. Internal and external evaluations have confirmed real and tangible positive outcomes for families who have received services. On average, parents with at-risk parenting skills and attitudes demonstrate significant improvements in their parenting. There is an overall decrease in levels of distress and unhappiness for all family members. As well, MSPCC staff connect the vast majority of participating families to appropriate services to improve their future prospects. Ultimately, and most importantly, this combined progress leads to a decrease in the likelihood of child abuse and neglect.
Program Long-Term Success  The ultimate aims of these services are to strengthen at-risk families to reduce the incidents of child abuse and neglect and create more stable and nurturing families for children (whether biological, adoptive, foster or kinship). All relevant research confirms that children who have relationships with consistent, caring adults in their early years achieve better academic performance, healthier behaviors, more positive peer interactions, and an increased ability to cope with stress. Families with sufficient and stable resources also contribute positively to children’s well-being. What’s more, the children who benefit from these services now are far more likely to provide strong, loving homes to their future children.
Program Success Monitored By  MSPCC records and closely monitors all families’ services received and progress. External research and evaluation takes place periodically, depending on available funding.
Examples of Program Success

"My (MSPCC staff) visitor helps me more than anyone has. I would recommend my visitor to anyone who needs her – she is awesome. We thank her for everything she has done for me and my family." – Mother receiving services from MSPCC’s Worcester program

"MSPCC has made an amazing difference in my life. I am very happy with my (MSPCC) home visitor and the generous services from the program." – Mother receiving services from MSPCC’s Lawrence program

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.

1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?


2. What are your strategies for making this happen?


3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?


4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?


5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
